Minzy recently opened up about her relationship with 2NE1 after the group’s disbandment and shared her thoughts on joining a new girl group.
On February 10, KBS aired the first episode of Unnie’s Slam Dunk Season 2. The program was Minzy’s first project since she announced her departure from YG Entertainment last year.
During the episode, she briefly talked about 2NE1 and their recent disbandment. Minzy finally broke her silence and dedicated a touching statement to her former bandmates, CL, Dara and Bom.
“So many people gave us their love and support for the seven years we were a group. I hope they all do well.”
When asked further as to the reason why she chose to join Unnie’s Slam Dunk, she added, “I missed the fun and noisiness of the waiting rooms. I was worried about how people would view me, seeing that I’m joining another girl group after I left my previous one to go solo. I thought it would be good to meet these new people.”
This was not the first time that Minzy opened up about joining the variety program. During their recent press conference, she confessed that she joined the program because of the cast members, even calling them her “emotional cheerleaders.”
Unnie’s Slam Dunk has changed the initial concept of the show for its new season and is focused on the formation of a girl group consisting of their cast members.
